To prepare for water-bath canning:

  1. Wash jars and lids in hot soapy water; rinse with warm water.
  2. Fill canning pot half full of water; add jars and water to cover. Bring water to a boil, reduce heat and simmer.
  3. Place lids in water to cover in a small saucepan; bring water to a simmer. Simmer until ready to use.
  4. Remove and drain jars and lids, one at a time, as needed for filling.

To make the jam:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Place nuts in a baking pan; bake, stirring once, for 8 minutes or until lightly toasted. Set aside.
  2. In the bowl of a food processor, add cut mango and papaya and process until finely chopped.
  3. In a large, heavy stock pot, combine chopped fruit, juice, cloves and pectin; stir until pectin is dissolved. Let stand 10 minutes.
  4. Bring mixture to a full rolling boil (a boil that doesn’t stop bubbling when stirred) over medium-high heat. Boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; add Splenda Sweetener, stirring until sweetener dissolves. Skim off any foam. Stir in nuts and orange zest.

To can the jam:

  1. Ladle hot jam immediately into prepared jars, leaving ½” of headspace at top of jars. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with 2-piece lids; tighten bands.
  2. Place jars on rack in canning pot. (Water must cover jars by at least 1”; add boiling water, if necessary.) Cover; bring water to a gentle boil.
  3. Process for 10 minutes. Remove jars and place upright on a towel to cool completely.
  4. After jars cool, check seals by pressing center of lid with finger. (If lid springs back, lid is not sealed and refrigeration is necessary.)
  5. Store in a cool, dark place for up to 1 year. Once opened, store refrigerated and use within 2 weeks.
